624. AUTHORITY, Civil and Military.—[further continued]..

I sincerely wish General
Wilkinson could be appointed as you propose.
But besides the objection from principle,
that no military commander should be
so placed as to have no civil superior, his
residence at Natchez is entirely inconsistent
with his superintendence of the military posts.—
To Samuel Smith. Ford ed., viii, 29.
(W. March. 1801)
